Emergency management and public works crews have been waiting for flakes to fall. The city and county employees say Friday's early morning precipitation isn't a concern, it's the ice in the overnight hours that could do some damage.
Dougherty County public works say they will bring in a relief staff this evening to monitor the roads and bridges. 11 local bridges will be covered with sand should ice and snow become a problem. City crews plan to do the same thing, but they say the overnight hours will be a bigger concern. Authorities are warning drivers to slow down. Fire crews say they have a steady staff on call all day should road accidents become a problem.
